Easter FNSI 2016

What a great weekend to sit & do some sewing. Had some help from my little chicken.

Hope you all had a fun weekend. Thanks Wendy for the inspiration.

Friday was the first rain we have had in months.
It was so nice to hang out with the squids inside play games, sew & watch some TV.

Last weekend I joined Mum (Life on the block) at a retreat where I started my first new quilt for the year.
Pacific Crest by John Q Adams in Beyond Neutral publication. The quilt on the cover.

This weekend I have been working on making all the blocks.
104 HST for 52 6 1/2" blocks & 34 HST for 17 12 1/2" blocks.
Wow that is a lot of cutting.

Half way through the 6 1/2" blocks, still need to make 20 sub blocks.
Is going together well.

Off now to spend some time with emboirdery friends.
Enjoy crafting Sandra

Sounds like you had a great Easter, Sandra. There sure is a lot of cutting & stitching with that quilt, but I do love the look. I read about a woman who is making every quilt in that book, intending to do so with a 12 months period!
